Worm May Turn
Mfg. Unknown
Made in USA
Circa 1940s
6.25" high x 4.25" wide

Mechanical card with grommet in the boy's eye. Moving the tab moves the worm back and forth.

Quite possibly my favorite card in the whole collection. I love how it's half-valentine, half-threat. Also the mechanical elements are really well integrated into the overall card design. The grommet and the white tab add to the graphic appeal of the card, which is unusual. Typically, the mechanical parts of these old valentines are add-ons and not intrinsic design elements.
